Mad Science Week is Here! June 25, 2014

Hello campers and parents! It has been a fabulous start to Hi-Hills Day Camp this week. Our first theme is Mad Science Week and we are so excited for our dress up day on Friday as Robot Invasion! We cannot wait to see all of the creative costumes.

Campers are having fun in the sun while also learning some new, cool science facts. In music, campers are learning about traveling sound waves using a slinky, while in Arts & Crafts they are creating some chemical reactions with watercolor and salt. In Nature, campers are meeting all of camp’s creepy, crawly friends and learning a bunch of fun facts.

HI-HILLS CRITTER FACTS:
Have you ever heard of a milk snake? If you haven’t, you would think that its name is pretty funny. They got their name because everyone used to believe that snakes would come onto farms and suck the milk from the cows! This story was not true because the snakes were after the rodents, not the milk!

 

In addition to these fun activities, the Slippery, Slimy Science class is experimenting with all sorts of materials to create some fun projects. They are making Play-doh, glue, bouncy balls, tie-dye paper and more. Today is also the start of leagues and trivia which we are very excited to start.
